Which youngster has the best volleying skills?

i would say Gasquet
Obviously i would have said Ancic one year ago but now he is more than 21(he is 22 now) so not really a youngster anymore....

Re: Which youngster has the best volleying skills?

While I'd say Gasquet is the best volleyer, I'd put Rafael Nadal with a close second. That is, in my opinion, the most underrated part of his game.

I love tennis because of...

Andre Agassi (always #1)---Novak Djokovic ---Rafa Nadal---
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga---Gilles Simon---Tomas Berdych---David Nalbandian---Nico Almagro

Re: Which youngster has the best volleying skills?

It's really out of Nadal, Berdych and Gasquet. Berdych is pretty hit and miss, he pulls out some top draw volleys at big moments but also makes some horrible errors. I say Nadal overall, they aren't very nice technically and with that style he will never become a great volleyer but he is good.

Champions deserve whatever they win playing within the laws of the game

Nadal can play great volleys, that's right.
Gasquet of course, and the third man is Baghdatis.

Murray's volleys are very underrated. I'd like to see him S and V more at important times.

Re: Which youngster has the best volleying skills?

Gasquet is the best volleyer in my opinion. Baghdatis also has soft hands around the net, and Nadal's volley is underrated.

Re: Which youngster has the best volleying skills?

Gasquet, this guy has great skills at net, I have seen enough matches when he even prefered to play half volley then volley to make his life harder, he has huge touch at net

I haven't seen him play, but if he truely does possess great hands at the net, than that is a good thing. We need more all court players in the game. I think Federer could have a serious influence on how the up and coming players play. He has shown that you can be very successful with a well balanced all court game, so who woulden't want to play like that?
